European tour comes to tragic end for Clear Lake couple
A Clear Lake woman dies from the injuries she suffered in a train crash in northern Spain. 59-year old Myrta Fariza and her husband Robert were touring Europe after attending their daughter's wedding in Rome:
"All she wanted was for me to hug her and that's all I could do. And of course screaming out for help to see if they could actually take her in..."
Robert Fariza suffered minor injuries in the crash.
Fariza's son-in-law Brian Buerkett tells our TV partner Local-2 the family is still working out the details of bringing her home.
"This isn't true life to most people; this is so surreal and it feels like a horrible nightmare."
Spanish officials say 70 accident victims are still in the hospital - 22 of them are in critical condition. The train conductor has been charged with negligent.
